365 Maps With MapCarte

The ICA Commision on Map Design has obtained, analyzed, and shared 365 different maps. In the individual blog posts, Ken Field goes into detail to discuss the design and purpose of the maps. Only a handful of them are geographic maps, while many also serve as infographics to help us understand the world better. Some of them just look really good. It was their goal to have a collection of good maps with quality design principles available for inspiration. Going through them all would be very addicting, since these maps will also lead you to more information about mapping techniques and historical context. Perhaps we could even attempt to recreate some of these on our own!

The maps can be found on Pinterest here as well.

OpenStreetMap launched routing

Open Street Map - Directions Geoawesomeness

OpenStreetMap is an amazing project. It gathered a community of dedicated cartographers from all around the world, who voluntarily create and openly share the spatial data to the public. And it many cases OSM does it much better than Google and other commercial maps providers.

Starting this week OSM is getting even better. It now offers A-to-B directions. Lots of third-party apps and services have powered their directions using OpenStreetMap data for some time. Now OSM supports them as well. You can get directions for travel by bicycle, car or on foot. OpenStreetMap team hopes that adding directions will attract more people to actively use and contribute to the project. And we hope they will succeed.
